Solo travel experience

Travelled solo with a tour group and did the Ef ultimate break tour! Highly recommend it’s 10 days in Bogotá, Medellin, cartengaga. You get a taste of everything that place has to offer like tejo in Bogotá, nightlife in Medellin and beaches in cartenaga. I felt overall very safe and even walked around in the mornings to get coffee alone

Solo travel experience

Colombia was my dream country. I spent 3 weeks solo there and was able to visit Cartagena, Santa Marta, Salento, and Medellin. I felt safe and was able to do all the things I wanted to do when visiting Colombia. I met so many amazing people and made memories of a lifetime.

Colombia is an incredible country. People always smile and dance. The food is very good and the sun so good too. I spend 2 months traveling all around colombia and Cali was my favorite city. Salsa is everywhere.

I remember going with my father and spend some days there over the city called Medellin. It was nice and I really enjoyed the activities there. I wish I could have stayed longer and had more time to enjoy everything but I had to go back to Brazil because of my studies. I hope to come back to Colombia soon!!
